Pass on this Aston Martin.

Legendary car manufacturer Aston Martin will throw their hat   into the bicycle ring when they launch the One-77 superbike in July.
The limited edition bike, which will go on sale next month, may look   familiar; it borrows the  technology used in the Factor001 - hailed as the most   advanced bike ever made a few years back - but re-badged with the heavyweight   branding of Aston Martin.
     The company behind that bike, Factorbikes, is a   subsidiary of a firm - BERU f1 systems - which provides products to the   motorsport industry. Aston Martin's bike features the same 'motorsport-derived   data logging system' which apparently makes it a very capable bike indeed.     This primarily comes in performance feedback which provides over 100 channels   of data including speed, temperature, rate of climb and power plus more advanced   data such as accelerometers to measure lean, crank torque levels, and biometric   data such as ECG, respiration rate and core body temperature.
All this is going to cost you to the tune of 25,000. For your money you get   a carbon frame, Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset, disc brakes, full carbon 8-spoke   wheels and handle bars complete with leather tape to 'echo the form of the   One-77 car', a vehicle which Aston Martin say inspired the bike.
Not that there's likely any danger, but you'll need to move fast should you   want one - only 77 will be available worldwide.
